Help COnfusion regarding LORs?

Hi forum members!
I have one question..I have just read that LORs can be uploaded after july 1st only.The main issue is the i am onto CK prep now.I don't have any LOR ...don't have even LORs from my home country..
What should i do now? i planned to do few observerships & take LORs from US as well as Canada..what should be my strategy?
I plan to give CK by july end.i will have the month of August to get LORs..Can i do much time does it take for an LOR to be uploaded & updated on the ERAS ?

please please someone reply me.

From what I remember, usually it take 2 weeks after they receive the letter. They say to leave a whole month for the process just in case though. I recommend you get a LOR from your country just in case you did not get the one in August. If you are in a long observership (more than a month!) you can ask the supervisor to write you the letter before the observership ends. It doesn't have to be at the end of the observership. Tell him that you need it for the match application.
